Static Corrections 
Estimated Time to Complete: 2 hours (average of 20 minutes per Subtopic) Examines how static corrections are applied to seismic data to compensate for nearsurface or waterbottom effects. Describes longwavelength static problems and computation methods, including considerations in choosing a seismic datum and accounting for the geology of the area. Examines deterministic methods for deriving the nearsurface velocity model. Discusses shortwavelength static corrections, including crosscorrelation methods, surfaceconsistent methods, genetic algorithms, crossdip corrections and 3D statics. Describes layer replacement techniques of ray trace modeling and wave equation datuming.
